Ko Ko are an avant indie pop duo from Los Angeles that our friend Andrew turned us onto. Brothers Ryan Lawhorn and Taylor Lawhorn have created a beautifully small, yet diverse offering in Float – a three song release available on bandcamp. The title track, Float, sounds something like the grandeur that would be created should Miike Snow meet up with Ed Sharpe. It’s a very catchy song built in saturated happiness that would tire if it was their only sound. However, the songs Intermission and Strange deliver more, showcasing the range of talent that they possess and the diversity of their influences (Kurt Vile, Damien Jurado, Twin Shadow, Alberto Giacometti, Gerhard Richter). Long live Ko Ko.
